A new version of the Primate Gallery is in development. Unfortunately, the Primate Gallery is no longer available on the me.com website, since Apple recently canceled this web service.
Recently discovered primate species and hundreds of photos will be added to this primatology website.
Patas monkeys, also known as red guenons, are old world monkeys that live in family groups. They are primarily ground-dwelling – being often found in open bush and grass savannas. Note the distinct black face and white moustache.
Vervets are small, greenish-olive or silver-gray monkeys that are common in East Africa. They adapt easily to many environments and are the most widespread of the African monkeys.
Males and females are sexually dimorphic, with the males being about twice as large as females.
